building a safety net. and ryan made clear he's proud of the campaign he and mitt romney ran. but he also subtly and indirectly disstansd himself from the comment romney made about the 47% of the americans perceived to be democratic because they rely on the government. >> both parties tend to divide america into our voters and their voters. republicans must steer clear of that trap. we need to speak to the aspirations -- we must speak to the aspirations and anxieties of every american. i believe we can turn on the engines of upper mobility so that no one is left out from the promise of america. >> reporter: senator rubio said he thinks the promise of tomorrow is with hotel workers, landscapers and late-night january towards. senator rubio says he doesn't thing lower-income americans are looking for handouts. he thinks they are looking for jobs so they can provide for their families. >> government has a role to play and we should be sure it does its part. but it's a supporting role to help create the conditions to create prosperity. it can't substitute for a thriving free economy. >> repor

mitt romney, newt gingrich, and the nominee in the end, mitt romney did not win. but this always happens, as part of the process, every four years. there's always the mario cuomo, always that other name that's out there that always sounds attractive to the party but perhaps there's a back story that explains why that person did not get into the race in the first place. >> but it doesn't always happen a representative of a news organization asks if her coverage is going okay. that's troublesome. i'm wondering if we can't get the comment back from k.t. mcfarland because she's somewhere under a bus right now. thank you for that reporting from washington. >>> president obama talking about the fiscal cliff. in his first television interview since the election, that cliff, of course the combination of government spending cuts and tax increases that automatically go into effect on january 1st because people we elected to make a deal can't make a deal. yesterday, republicans proposed steep spending cuts but gave no ground on president obama's call to raise taxes on the wealthiest america
norquist also predicted an overwhelming victory by mitt romney and was proven wrong then, too. i think he and other republicans are playing a very dangerous game with their own political futures by failing to see the connection between this situation and the situation we were in around 1995 when there was a government shutdown. republicans thought they could drive this to the bitter end, and what happened? the american voters actually blamed them, the republicans, for what happened. i think it's a pattern in american politics when things happen that are, in effect, harmful government shutdowns, if you will, or breakdowns of process, the blame usually ends up on the side of the obstructionists in the republican party. i think there are enough republicans who want to win re-election who see that the strategy of obstruction failed them in this last election. they want to pivot and make a rebrand of the republican party. those are the folks that are the deciding votes in the republican caucus, enough to combine with democrats who shorten that margin in the house to get something passed. >> an

to rally around the right candidate that they wanted to for president, mitt romney would be worried about this coming up in the next presidential term. >> look, the fact that boehner's been criticized by conservative organizations and other republicans show that he's seriously considering negotiating the white house and we saw the results of the election, we're willing to concede their increases in revenue but to the point of my colleague, we are not in parliamentary democracy but we're not in a monarchy either. we're in a constitutional democracy and the mandate of the people was for both parties to work together. republicans are saying, we're willing to increase revenue. what is the person willing to give up? >> membership friend, ty friend on this alone. you guys lost. we need to rally around the concept that you must compromise in washington in order to -- you guys didn't come up with any tax relief and your party's base is acting crazy. that is the problem. you don't realize it takes more than your party's outliers. >> where is the sensible center on this? >> listening to both of the

at length about the challenges facing the nation and their party. ryan praised romney and spoke out against divisive politics as some soft rind distancing himself from the 47% remark. paul ryan mentioned poverty 15 times and says that the gop has to stick to conservative principles and appeal to more voters. >> the election didn't go our way. the republican party can't make excuses. we can't spend the next four years on the sidelines. instead, we must find new ways to apply a timeless principles to the challenges of the day. >> marco rubio barely even mentioned the campaign and focus on conservative policy proposals. he says they will strengthen and expand the middle class. he says the middle class is struggling and it's harder for some people to reach out. >> there is a growing opportunity gap developing. millions of americans worry that they may never achieve middle-class prosperity and stability, and they worry that their children will be tracked as well. with the same life and problems. >> a rough count has it as many as 22 republicans actually talking about it. in a few cases, some peo
't suffer fools, and so he would be grouchy. i was grouchy last night when romney said we have fewer ships today than we had in 1917. i was grouchy when obama said something just as stupid. john quincy adams was this fabulously learned man who had stayed with history. the reason for the monroe doctrine -- in south america the various countries were beginning to rebel against the spanish king, and the french king was a cousin of the spanish king and the french were going to send military aid to put out these barbarians of english and they send their military to keep the french from going into south america. and they invited the americans to join them in keeping the french out of south america because obviously south america was rich with gold and silver, and john quincy adams was the secretary of state and said absolutely not. we are not going to get involved in a foreign war. we are not going to let them come over here either. and that was the seed planted for the shooting of the monroe doctrine. monroe doctrine wasn't a separate doctrine. was a part of lonrho's message and he asked his ca

is a former republican strategist, has a history of meeting privately with people like mitt romney and other candidates on the gop side when they were r running. he likes to keep his fingers in the political pie a little bit. >> why would he care? what would be in it for roger ailes? . >> i don't think that's the way to look at it. roger ailes i know really cares about the country. he's made no secret of his conservative views. he may have believed general petraeus was a great general, would be a great leader for this country. the problem comes in is one of perception. we don't know because this is just an audiotape involving a fox contributor, we don't know how serious a courtship this was. but fox is a news organization that covers petraeus and politics and if somebody from, i don't know, cnn, nbc, abc had the head of one of those networks met with somebody on the democratic side, said, hey, you ought to run for president, the fox commentators would be all over it? i think so. >> ailes also said, his words, it sounds like she thought she was on a secret mission in a reagan administration,
to oppose romney. so that's like 2:1. >> you're not adding in the seiu. >> down at $14 million. i'm looking at the "wall street journa journal"'s page on super pacs. i've got the restore america's future 1rks 42, priorities usa -- >> if you add up all the super pa pacs, they barely balance out the union involvement. >> sciu was down ninth, 14.7 million. >> why are you arguing about this will? the results are out. >> are there lessons for business in the advertising campaigns by the super pacs? assuming that one side went wrong here, where did they go wrong? >> you're focusing on the super pacs and of course it's about the strategists and how they went about it. and the simple fact is the democrats understood the demographic changes whether you're talking about african-american, hispanics, single women. and understanding the changes taking place. i think the republican party is still rooted to a large september extent in the past. if you look at the nature of the people involved on either side, it was i think predictable that one set of advisers was in touch and the others weren't. >> martin

perry wanted and was mocked for it. unfortunately by mitt romney. or the people that have been here 20 years as newt gingrich said put them on a path to citizenship. in other words the gop made a mockery out of dealing with hispanic immigrants and i think that's a crucial point in their defeat. >> there's no question that the way that the gop is approaching this immigration issue is similar to generations ago they approached affirmtive action with the black community. these are turn offs when you don't have a clear discussion what a low wage income earner needs. especially on this question because they have family members that are here illegally. larry that's not the major problem we're seeing today with the latino community and the hispanics especially those coming from mexico. this community of people of the last generation have come in and adopted this policy if you will that there's nothing wrong with government dependency. one question to say do they come in and work hard. they work hard and work hard at a low wage. they are open territory important the democrats to say let's unio

to republicans and at bottom of the hour, the president will meet here. meanwhile mitt romney's running mate, paul ryan said in a speech last night it's time for the republican party to change its approach to politics. >> both parties tend to divide americans into our voters and their voters. let's be really clear. republicans must steer far clear of that trap. we must speak for the aspirations and anxieties of every american. >> reporter: in addition to paul ryan, marco rubio appeared in that same washington event. both are thinking about a possible run for the presidency in 2016. rubio said republicans also have to reshape their message to middle class americans and those who want to enter the middle class. >> major garrett, thank you. >>> officials say another crisis is looming, but it's physical not fiscal. flu season is off to an early and strong start. the south is already hard hit by this year's strain. three school systems in tennessee have closed the rest of the week because so many students and teachers are sick. with us now, past president of the national foundation for infectious
if romney didn't win. this fiscal cliff negotiation seems doomed. am i being pessimistic? >> we're basically spending like europeans, but being taxed like americans. at some point you got to decide which you want. basically american government spending now is getting close to norwegian levels. and at that point, you can't have american tax levels. >> brian: what is their level? >> they spend 46% of gdp and people pay that. that's reflected in their taxes. america is basically borrowing $188 million every hour in washington. seven days a week, 24 hours a day, thanksgiving, ramadan, whatever. that gap cannot be closed by sticking to to the rich. >> brian: don't you think the president realizes that or do you think he fully realizes that in. >> oh, yeah, he does. this is the cunning thing. he's going to blame it on the rich, blame it on the republicans. but right now if you're just an average working guy with an average income, your taxes are going to go up because for him -- pour for the president, it's not about the economy. it's about government. it's about the size of government. not the ec
. he also served as economic adviser to former presidential candidate mitt romney. kevin, what's your feeling now? i saw one of my colleagues tweeted a -- i don't get the "washington post," but dana milbank said republicans are raising a white flag as big as a bed sheet. is that how you see it? >> it is interesting if you look at the negotiations that president obama offered this massive tax increase with no concessions and this sort of outrageous request on the debt limit which was a really aggressive first offer. and then the republican s countered with a moderate reasonable plan exactly modeled after a proposal by erskine bowles. so if you're trying to handicap the negotiations, you'd have to concede that dana is on to something. >> really. so -- >> at least like the starting point. so basically the starting point for the republicans is what president obama probably would have viewed as a victory if they had the negotiation. >> yeah, he wanted another 400 supposed supposedly. how does simpson-bowles get to -- how does it raise revenue? what's the number that it raises? >> well, it
difference, one reason why people like me look at former presidential candidate mitt romney talk about npr or planned parenthood. the number one answer for balancing the budget is foreign aid. which if you really wanted to balance the budget and you don't always have to go to the department of justice or whatever it may be. but over the next ten years, 90% of federal outlays will be medicare, medicaid, social security, defense spending and interest on the debt. you can wipe everything else out and you'll basically -- >> it's like what you were talking about in the last hour, to rational exuberance. americans want it, want it now, and don't want to pay for it. there's a certain quality in american democracy that just allows us to be completely self-deluded. >> dan brought up an grinterestg point, the debt. which they're going to go up, at that point, you've got a serious problem on your hands. >> why wouldn't -- as a leader of the free world, why wouldn't you be saying i've got to get these entitlements under control? they're not even talking about it, not addressing it on these sides. >> i
. for the presidency, for a race that was supposed to be president romney's, according to his people, was president obama's mainly because president obama stood up for the middle class and said, when it comes to taxes, we all have to pay our fair share; no more, no less. so when you tell your friends that the president wants to give you your tax cut, you should tell them also it's being held up by the republicans in congress who are sitting on a bill that passed july 25, 2012. 98% of the american people will get their tax break continued, and only income over $250,000 will be taxed at the same rates when bill clinton was president. let's take a look back at those days. were they harsh for people? no. we had more millionaires created, i remember, in those days than we had in generations. you know why? because when the middle class is strong and he invested in the middle class, he invested in our people, they get good jobs, they pay enough taxes, they go to the mall, they make -- they take a trip across the country to see all the great landmarks, and people across this country who have businesses do
-pays in cancer screenings, no co-pays for deductibles. we're closing the doughnut hole. under the romney plan, because they're paying providers more, your co-pay part of that provider fee is more, so your co-pay and the deductible will be more. those are for people over 55. people under medicare would pay more under the alternative than they are paying today. if you're under 55, you got your $500 a month every month trying to make your health care. because the thing is, if medicare is saving money and the health care costs do not go down, then somebody's got to pay the difference. adding insult to injury to that you have corporate profits, dividends and commissions and everything else being stipended off. so you not only have to pay the health care costs. you have to pay enough to cover the corporate profits. and so that's where senior citizens would be paying $500, $600 a year more. ms. moore: mr. scott, let me see if i got this straight. under the affordable care act, we're asking that instead of having seniors pay more, you know, find themselves in the doughnut hole, that we ask pharmaceut
